MacDonald: conforming to Him

Tuesday, April 18, 2017
    But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
    —1 Peter 4:13-14 (ESV)
    The Son of God... suffered unto the death, not that men might not suffer, but that their sufferings might be like His.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), “The Consuming Fire”, in Unspoken Sermons [First Series], London: A. Strahan, 1867, p. 41 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 4:13-14; Rom. 8:17-18; 2 Cor. 4:10; Phil. 3:10-11; Col. 1:24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, all that I suffer is nothing compared with what You suffered for me.
